NFL DFS TNF Showdown – Week 13 – Seattle Seahawks vs. Dallas Cowboys

Core Plays

Dallas Cowboys: QB Dak Prescott

  • You’ll be hard pressed to find a better performing Quarterback in the fantasy space than what Prescott has been doing for the better part of a month. Over that stretch Prescott has more fantasy points per game than any other quarterback. Like the Cowboys overall (5-0), Dak has been dominant at home. In those five games he’s thrown 15 touchdowns to just two interceptions with 1,555 passing yards while completing close to 78 percent of his passes. The Seahawks have lost east of their last three road games, including a 37-3 thumping at Baltimore two and a half weeks back. While it could be a concern that Dallas gets out to a big lead and Dak sits on the ball, that hasn’t been the case to this points. With all of that home production highlighted above, Dallas has won its home games by an average margin of victory of 28.8 points.

Dallas Cowboys: WR Brandin Cooks

  • While locking in WR CeeDee Lamb ($11,400) or RB Tony Pollard ($9,800) would be more ideal, the cumulative salary with Prescott and one of those skill players really makes lineup construction tight as far as building around such a core. However, looking at Cooks whose comes in at $8,000 is a calculated risk that I’m happy taking as far as his possible range of outcomes go. Sidenote, I love the receiving yards prop for Cooks at OVER 37.5 if you can still find it. Over his last three games Cooks has seen five, four, and 10 targets; 10 on is oily being the outlier three games ago. I think we can expect somewhere in the four to seven target range here. Cooks’ big play ability makes me interested as a high-risk high-reward guy. The veteran has amassed 4, 3, and 9 receptions in his last three contests for 72, 42, and 173 yards with two total touchdowns. If looking for a “safer” play in this core outside of Cooks, consider Tight End Jake Ferguson ($6,200) who’s seen three, five, seven, 10, and four targets in his last four games as more of a “floor” play.

*NOTE: All plays above are obviously “Captain” viable

Captain Plays

D/ST Dallas Cowboys

  • This isn’t a typical look for me in Showdown but considering the Cowboys’ D/ST in this spot is warranted. This unit has been getting after it, especially at home with 15, 27, 15, 8, and 16 DK points in those games. Quarterback Geno Smith, who’s banged up has thrown just four touchdowns to three interceptions in five road games this season while taking 13 sacks. If Smith is too banged up late in this game, which is possible if the Seahawks are getting blown out, there’s a chance we see backup Drew Lock who absolutely stinks.

Others to consider:

  • WR CeeDee Lamb (DAL)
  • RB Tony Pollard (DAL)

Flex Plays

Seattle Seahawks: WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba

  • JSN has been underwhelming in his rookie season as he’s been blocked by receivers Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf in most cases. Over the past four weeks, though JSN has seen seven, five, six, and three targets and is becoming more involved. With Seattle likely needing to throw late in the game and Lockett and Metcalf banged up, there’s a potential for some garbage time points.

Others to consider:

  • RB Rico Dowdle (DAL)
  • WR D.K. Metcalf (SEA)
  • WR Jalen Tolbert (DAL)
  • TE Noah Fant (SEA)
  • WR Jake Bobo (SEA)
